Overview

libfreenect is a library for accessing the Microsoft Kinect USB camera. This package downloads revision d1d19df895 from the libfreenect repository.

Starting from Oneiric (Ubuntu 11.10), deb packages for libfreenect are available. However, the downloaded tarball contains a much newer stable revision. The main advantage of using this revision over the system package are:

  • The ability to search for a Kinect through serial number, necessary for running multiple Kinects.
  • USB 3.0 Support

The tarball is currently hosted here.
